It's not the heat; it's the humidity. When should I say this? Rainy day?

Say this on a day that is uncomfortably hot with moisture in the air; It doesn't necessarily need to be rainy. There is a difference in "dry" heat (like going to a desert with the sun beating down on you and you feel like your skin is hot and burning), and "humid/wet" heat (when the air feels hot and sort of wet... maybe before a tropical storm, or an odd day of heat with clouds in the summer). :)

Yea in Rainy day when weather is very hot. Humidity adds so much discomfort to the air that without it you would feel much better.even at such a temperature.Higher humidity feels warmer. That is because the human body uses perspiration for cooling, and with conditions of higher humidity the body can't evaporate perspiration as quickly, so it feels warmer.
